Re: Namakwa Eco Route

I just want to add that there are some beautiful stretches on the other side of the river. I spent a day driving from Vioolsdrift to Sendelingsdrift in July last year, wild-camping somewhere next to the Orange. It was fabulous!

Re: TYRE WIDTH/TYPE VS FUEL CONSUMPTION

I went from 33x12.5 AT's to 32x11.5 Muddies to 265/70R16 HT's to 255/85R16 muddies.

No repeatable difference in fuel consumption, except in soft sand, where the narrow tyres have a noticeable advantage.

Re: My name is Danie Schoonwinkel and i am an addict.

Baie welkom Danie. Solid EN19 is onnodig. Jy kan natuurlik as jy wil, maar ASTM A106 pyp, as ek reg onthou 1.25" (maar dalk 1.125") Schedule 160 is wat die fabriek gebruik het. Dis meer as sterk genoeg, sonder om so sterk te wees dat jy die hub carriers breek as jy in 'n stomp vasry of op 'n klip ga...

Re: 18 to 20 May 2018 - Moegatle

I'm out. Murphy's got me by the short and curlies. I had hoped to start the engine on Saturday, but haven't managed to yet. Which means that i don't have enough time to run it in acceptably. And I was really looking forward to testing the longer shocks and shorter low range. Anybkdy feel like settin...

Re: My eerste van baie (Die Patrol)

Veels geluk.

Geld daai ding dat jy bestuurder-deur kan oopmaak as hy gesluit is, ook van buite af, of is dit net van binne af?

Want as dit van buite af ook werk, is daar verseker iets fout!

Re: Unimog gearbox vraag.

Reenen, ek het iewers op 4x4 Community gelees dat die hele Mog drivetrain omtrent net die krag van die standaard enjins kan hanteer. Maar ek het geen idee of die ou wat die opmerking gemaak het, weet waarvan hy gepraat het nie. Nie van toepassing op die ratkas nie, maar sover ek weet het die mog 'n ...

Re: Installing manual hubs

I doubt the snap ring has anything to do with controlling the hub's engagement sleeve. This must retract when the hub is un-locked.

If i understand correctly, the snap-ring's purpose is to keep the Birfield joint centered?
